Launching | Social Media Summer School For Lawyers And Law Firms

Welcome to the Lawyer In The Making Social Media Summer School! 

The Social Media Summer School for lawyers and law firms is a great way to work on your social media, improve your engagement and really understand the role social media can play for you and your business.

Social media is fundamental for lawyers and law firms; it is a place to share and discuss legal news, engage with lawyers around the world, and show potential clients that you are active in the legal sphere!

Who is the Social Media Summer School for?

The Social Media Summer School is for lawyers and law firms predominantly (though the information is useful for law students!).

Whether you have just set up your social media accounts, are thinking about doing so, or have had them for a while – there is something for everyone.

Plus the information I am going to be sharing is applicable to anyone based anywhere in the world!

A bit of background about me

I have been building up my law blog for approximately 8 years now and have written content and trained lawyers and law firms all over the world on all things digital marketing.  I am a law geek, but I also understand the importance of social media and blogging for lawyers.

Having had over 8 years experience working in the legal sector, I get lawyers (and I also understand clients).  That means I can tailor the training to what you (and your clients) need and want!

So why have I created the Social Media Summer School?

Some of you have had my 1-1 and group training sessions on social media and blogging (whether that be online or in person). However I wanted to create something that is accessible to even more of you, and something that you can use time and time again!

What is covered?

There are 6 lessons and 1 bonus session included in the summer school.  These sessions will include the essentials from setting things up to the frequently asked question “How often should I be posting?”, to what you can share, who to be following, and how to make life easier!

The topics covered are:

  1. Social Media Overview – basic tips and tricks, why social media is fundamental and what your audience want from you!
  2. Twitter
  3. Facebook
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Instagram
  6. Videos – YouTube, Periscope, Instagram Stories, Snapchat and platforms such as Facebook live.
  7. *Bonus* – blogging for lawyers and law firms!

Each session includes a video, and some useful information to take away and action.

 

 

Why should I sign up?

It is only £30. For that £30 you get 6 video lessons and documents and resources, plus one bonus session! You also get to email me any of your key questions (and I will respond as always, to each and every single one of them).  The videos and resources you can use time and time again.

Sign up here and you will receive the videos starting on the 1st September 2017.

This will be available after 1st September for you to sign up any time but the price will be £70.  So purchase before 1st September and save yourself £40.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a PayPal account, just pay as a guest!

Featured | Roll on Friday

So today my inboxes on various social media platforms (as well as my whatsapp) have been flooded with people sending me screenshots showing a picture of me on a Roll on Friday article.

You may remember years and years ago that I wrote a few blog posts about Roll on Friday, and some interesting/funny articles that they had shared.

Well today, on Roll on Friday, they featured a story about a parent who has got pretty involved in her son’s legal education through her social media accounts.  The reason I am featured, is because this particular parent happened to contact me ages ago via social media to ask some questions.

Lots of people have trawled through her social media history to find some of these tweets and comments.  Some of the tweets I have seen today so far about this story have been pretty harsh, and whatever you make of this parent’s actions, I am sure she had a good reason to do so, and she clearly just wants to be involved in her son’s education (rightly or wrongly).

If you do want to read the article you can access it here.

As always, Roll on Friday published this article, and Legal Cheek followed suit.

What have you been up to on a not so sunny July Friday?

p.s. if you are reading this and haven’t yet subscribed to my weekly email, you can do so by clicking here.  I promise I won’t spam your inbox, but I do have some rather exciting news which I will be sharing shortly, as well as some other projects throughout the year.

The Times | Student Offer

Why should law students check out The Times | Student Offer?

I love reading The Times, it is probably my go to newspaper in general but also the law section every week is really good.  What is even better is their online coverage.

You can get access online via the website, a smart phone and a tablet, plus Times+.

There are various other packages, and you can buy packages which enable you to pick up hard copies as well.

For me, having access to a newspaper online is amazing.  I can access it whenever, wherever and it is so helpful.  You can check out all of their packages here.

Whilst I don’t even think the monthly cost is overly expensive, they do have a student price.  It’s a bargain.  So if you have a spare £26 and a UniDays account then please do purchase this.  £26 for the year is nothing! Plus if you sign up you get unlimited access to The Times online, every year for 4 years if you pay the £26 each time.  That’s insanely good.

Do check it out, and even maybe consider adding it to the list of things you want for Christmas or Birthdays from people.  You won’t regret it.  Staying up to date is so important, and you shouldn’t just be staying up to date on legal news.  The news in general is so important, and it is necessary that you can demonstrate awareness.  As well as ascertaining if any impact on the legal sector.

Another great reason to have access via your phone is for all those interviews you might have.  You might get asked questions about recent news stories, or interesting articles you have read.  So you don’t need to panic and try and grab a copy of The Metro (or another freebie paper) on your commute, you can access The Times app on your phone and check out the news.

Get to know me!

Whilst I share a lot of information about what I am up to in my legal career and studies online, my personal/private life I do tend to keep private, I like it that way.  However, one of the things I want my blog to be is personal but professional.  with that in mind I thought you should get

So here is an opportunity to get to know me a little better!

  1. My name is Rebecca.  No one really shortens it, I think I always wanted it to be Rebecca at school, as I knew I wanted to do it law.  Well I say no one really shortens it, that’s true, apart from my little sisters.  Being the oldest, when they both came along they struggled to say Rebecca, so they tend to call me Bec.
  2. I have grown up in London.  I feel so lucky to have grown up in a city that I want to work in.  I love London, and it is every aspiring lawyers dream, so I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.  I do also love the fact that I am surrounded by amazing cities, plus the countryside and seaside.
  3.  I am ridiculously shy.  No one ever believes me, but I am.  I have always been shy and I am lucky that I know a few ways to hide the nerves when speaking at events or out and about.
  4.  I love holidays.  Ideally the kind where you just lounge around in the sun for days, but I’m not adverse to a city break either.
  5. Costa Hot Chocolate with marshmallows is the one.  If you follow me on my social media platforms you will know it is my go to drink.
  6. My closest friends are all guys. I don’t know why, it just happened that way.  There are a handful of them that I would be lost without.  Obviously, I have some girls that I am friends with as well!
  7. I have a 12 year age gap between my youngest sister and I. I was in Year 7 when she born, and I remember the day as if it was yesterday.  Now she is taller than me, far more head strong than I ever was at her age and it is a constant reminder of how much the world has changed since I was her age.
  8. When I was born there were 5 generations.  I love looking at a picture we have of my Great-Great Grandad, my Great-Granny, my Grandad, my Mum and then me as a tiny baby!
  9. I am actually brown belt in karate.  When I was younger I would go along to classes twice a week, and I would hate the thought of going, but love it once I was there (I am sure my parents hated me for this).  I gave it up when I started secondary school.
  10. My family have a house in Scotland, in the middle of nowhere, with hills and beaches nearby.  It is perfect, and the perfect escape from London.

So there you have it, 10 things you may or may not have known about me.
